The Message Romney Missed

The biggest mistake I think Romney made was failing to pursue the Latino vote. This is particularly sad considering one of Romney's sons speaks beautiful Spanish. Why was he not used more to reach out to Latino communities? We need to find Spanish speaking conservatives and put them on the radio in talk shows. There are enormous numbers of small Latino business owners, driving around in their pickup trucks with lawnmowers and tool boxes in the back. These hard workers are natural conservatives, who frequently share our values. We are fools if we don't find a way to draw them into the fold.

No, you didn't pay attention to the article - the biggest mistake Romney made was in failing to expose Obama as the radical he is, and expose his policies as the failures they are. Romney dissed the base, and sought the votes of "moderates", but not by trying to attract them - only by tip toeing around and hoping not to offend them by going after Obama too strongly or standing up for conservatism too adamantly. Romney was and is a pansy.

I agree. Obama is beyond a radical Socialist, and until Republican leadership points out the actions, attitudes and evidence to our millions, he will continue to speak as if he cared about the private sector and Capitalist prosperity.
He will do all his past and present mentors and fellow travelers wanted or want.
Check them out, instead of just drinking the koolaid provided by the national news and press.

The post mortems on the presidential campaign continue to pour in, the ones on the botched Romney effort the more interesting (and more depressing for those of us who supported him). President Obama was clearly vulnerable, and Mitt Romney clearly positioned to defeat him.

So what went wrong? Let me add my analysis. Three words: Message. Messenger. Messaging.

The messenger was flawed, unwilling to take risks, unprepared for the Obama political wrecking machine, left dazed and confused Election Night.

If inept messaging could be deemed a felony, this campaign was a crime against humanity. I've never seen...
